The 36th Annual Boca Raton Museum Art Festival | Get The Details Here

boca raton art museum festival 2023

The Boca Raton Museum of Art is one of the preeminent fixtures among our annual slate of public events. For seven decades, the museum has served our community as the ultimate centrifuge of arts & culture, hosting clinics, exhibits, and its own art school. Combining a global reach with a local focus, the Boca Raton Museum of Art is a pillar of our creative force and our growth as an artistic community. Without the centuries of colonial-era artwork that preceded much of Florida's current landscape, much of "Floridian" art has been inspired by local flora and fauna and manifested in the 20th century through today.

Beginning with Addizon Mizner's development of what is now downtown Boca - home to magnificent condos like 200 East, Alina Residences, and more, Boca Raton has grown to become a cultural hotspot in one of the younger states on the Eastern Seaboard. The Boca Raton Museum Art Festival is a celebration of our artistic community and the many works that have graced these halls in years past. Without further ado, learn more about the 36th Annual Boca Raton Museum Art Festival, what's expected, and why you should check it out!

2023 New Years Resolutions We All Can Benefit From

5 new years resolutions for 2023

Real Estate is a career that requires knowledge, savvy, and superb communication skills. However, there are few traits of a successful Realtor more important than drive, motivation, and desire. The New Year is not the only time to make changes to bad habits and amplify good ones, but it's a better time than never. As we look ahead to the next year of our lives as people, not just as professionals, we list some of the New Years' Resolutions fit for anyone seeking just whatever it is that moves them.

practice mindfulness

Practice Mindfulness & Gratitude

Between the expectations of our daily lives and the eternal stimuli from our screens, it's easy to lose track of the moment. So many of us (your author, admittedly included) spend too much time lamenting the past and fearing the future, wasting precious moments and energy on things we cannot help or change. Gratitude for what we have today ensures our past regrets remain just that, in the past, and ensures we have confidence going forward that we can weather whatever storm rises tomorrow. It is often our presence in the moment that optimizes our future. Mindfulness & gratitude take many forms, be it meditation, journaling, or simply stopping to breathe on a rigorous day. Find out what works for you and live for today!
